Featuring 162 tables and 134 figures – now available in Excel and Powerpoint! Learn More


This study examines the global motorcycle industry. Motorcycles are segmented into:

  • internal combustion engine (ICE), including scooters, mopeds, and motorbikes; light motorcycles; and medium and heavy motorcycles
  • electric, which include electric bicycles, mopeds, scooters, and motorcycles

In addition to two-wheeled vehicles, trikes (three-wheeled motorcycles) are included in the study numbers. Three-wheeled motorcycles include:

  • sidecar motorcycles, which are two-wheeled motorcycles with an attached one-wheel sidecar
  • traditional or purpose-built motorcycles used for recreational purposes that are fitted with a two-wheeled axle in either the front or rear

How will the COVID-19 coronavirus impact the global economy? The Freedonia Group is tracking recent developments and analyzing their impact in an easy to follow Economic Impact Tracker.

Excluded from the scope of this report are:

  • separately sold sidecars
  • three-wheeled auto rickshaws or truck-like “three-wheelers” produced in India, China, and other emerging markets that are used principally for business purposes
  • utility vehicles, such as all-terrain vehicles, utility task vehicles, autocycles, and motor vehicle/motorcycle hybrids

All figures are provided in units. Motorcycle demand is also presented in US dollars, and average motorcycle prices are also included.
